About this Item: Dar al-Kutub al-Misriyah, al-Qahirah, 1950. orig. wrappers. Condition: Minor rubbing. Unopened. VG. 28x19cm, 479 pp Text entirely in Arabic. Historical chronicle of medieval Egypt. [".Ibn Taghribirdi was the son of a leading Mamluk amir and in effect he suceeded al-'Ayni as court historian. Despite Ibn Taghribirdi's criticisms of al- Maqrizi, the early sections of his own chronicle 'al-Nujum al-zahirah fi muluk Misr wa-al-Qahirah' depend quite heavily on the 'Suluk'. The 'Nujum was initially written for Muhammad, son of the reigning sultan Jaqmaq., This chronicle was fiercely hostile to astrologers and delights in recording their failed predictions.,." - Roger Allen & D.S. Richards " Arabic Literature in the Post-Classical Period" p. 166]. Seller Inventory # 019988
